Customer’s Builds

I know I've been slacking as of late with the customer builds, but today it's all going to be made up to you with this stellar group of three.

Here's what we've got rocking today, a Big Block done up with pursuit bars, a Mr. Pink, and perhaps the most creative and ridiculous use of a Nature Boy frame to date.

Without further ado, let's get the ball rolling with this stunning example of the Big Block breed from Dave in Vancouver

gigantic pursuit bars, matching tape and saddle, color coordinated throughout. 
All in all a very nice build.

Up next is another gent named Dave, this time from Australia, and who also happens to own a Nature Boy.
Not content with one rad ass All-City he has now built himself this lovely Mr. Pink, and I'll tell you, nothing warms our heart more than someone liking one of our bikes enough to purchase a second one. 

Thanks a bunch for the support Dave, and for repping down under.

And last today, but certainly not least is this powdercoated Nature Boy from Larry at Competitive Instincts Bike Shop.

This thing has a two speed internal hub and Magura Hydro rim brakes. 

I absolutely love it when someone does something creative and unique with our frames that we've never seen before. 




Shine on you crazy diamond.

Remember, if you've got an special All-City out there, please do send us some photos, we love to see them.

We would like to find my friend Eric’s Nature Boy that was stolen a few months back from my garage as he came to say good bye to me since I was moving. It is lime and it had a gold King headset. I know it is a long shot but we are still looking.
This happened in Sycamore, IL.

Hey, love the Mr. Pink build by Dave! I want one…

Are we looking at a 53 or 55 in this photo?

Hope to receive some assistance from if I will have any questions.

I have no idea what the actual size is, but it’s gotta be a 52 or a 55.

Thanks Ryan! It’s a 52cm. (Short little legs)

What we ride:  Nick’s Space Horse

I hesitated posting pictures of my personal Space Horse build as it felt a little “braggy” to me but I really want to give you all a glimpse into where my brain is at. Buckle up and hold on. So truth be told I was never a big fan of the Space Horse. My only experience being the annual SaddleDrive industry event where I’d grab one and take it for a quick lap around the lower parking lot and back up the hill. The bikes are set up “to fit everyone” so the Space Horse always felt way too tall and uninspiring. Meh. In August of last year my opinion drastically changed.
